Why am i having menstrual cramps after my period

I had my period about a week from today (3/10/11) but yet for the past few days I have been having cramps similar to that of menstrual cramps. I have never experienced this before. Along with that my breast are super sensitive to the smallest touch and feel rather heavy.
About 3 weeks ago I had unprotected sex and took plan b about 36 hours later. The next night I had unprotected sex again. A week later was when I got my period. Just thought I would add that information.
I am not on birth-control and have never been pregnant. I have irregular periods as well. I am 18.
Any ideas of what might be happening to me? I am at a loss.
Could I be pregnant even though I took plan B?

I am not asking for your judgment I just want an answer to my questions. Thank you.

Yes, it is possible that you could be pregnant but it's not likely. You should probably make an appointment with a doctor if you keep experiencing the stomach cramps. If you took plan B and then continued to have unprotected sex then you can definitely be pregnant but if you just had a period then you probably aren't, if you think you are then make an appointment at planned parenthood or your regular doctor.

Also to having minor or major cramps is kinda normal on a period

I understand that but I already had my period. I've had premenstrual cramps not "post"mentrual cramps. That's where the confusion lies.

Really it depends on the body it's self, yeah it normal for any kind of cramping to ease off in a week but what I have heard it can sometimes go on for a little bit more longer, if you are young you shouldn't have any cramping for more than a week when you period start but idk how old you are
